Galería A.M.S Marlborough begins the year with a show of two contemporary spanish artists; Eduardo Chillida and Manolo Valdés.
Borned in San Sebastián, Spain, in january 1924, the basque sculptor E. Chillida is considered one of the most important artists of the XXth century. He begins his graphic works in 1959 and according to critics it turns in a complete different way from his sculpture. Black and white, with these only two colors Chillida makes his graphic work. "My father was interested in portrait the space and the void; and with these two colors, were enough for that. Sometimes black colors is matter and sometimes void, explains Luis Chillida, his son.
Manolo Valdés, painter, sculptor and graphic spanish artist was borned in Venecia in march 8th, 1942 and has become one of the most outstanding artists of the contemporary art.
His work is visually stunning. The volume and texture of its plastics expressions give strength to his works.
In the present graphic show, we can appreciate how Valdés calls upon the classic artists and use them to intervene his work.
